buona la resa del controluce con il cielo di una particolare colorazione.
Ben inserito il lampione a riempire bene in basso la scena,

πολύ κοντινό το πλάνο από τον Δισκοβόλο του Δημητριάδη απέναντι από το Παναθηναικό Στάδιο.Η γωνία λήψης είναι εξαιρετική με όλο το άγαλμα να προβάλλει στον πολύχρωμο ουρανό,
tedesse (22124) 2012-09-04 10:49
Beautifully presented in the discus thrower against the sunset sky.
Nice frame, beautiful colors, good sharpness.
mjw364 (3720) 2012-09-04 11:18
A topical picture at the moment. Great POV and colours.
papagolf21 (76603) 2012-09-04 11:31
Bonsoir, cher Danos,
Magnifique sculpture d'un discobole en préparation. Il faut féliciter le sculpteur et le photographe pour l'ensemble.
La beauté de l'image est manifeste.
aliabazari (10105) 2012-09-04 11:45
Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ γλυπτά. Σύνδεση με εξαιρετική καλό φωτισμό.
UlfE (13730) 2012-09-04 12:02
A rather unusal post from you but indeed a very good one. The vertical format is of course perfect and I could really see how you worked hard with the composition and POV. I really enjoy the way the the head of the thrower and the discus is pointing to the upper left corner and how you have hidden the top of the tree behind the statue. The colourful sky is a perfect backdrop. TFS and have a nice evening!
jacquest (14176) 2012-09-04 12:18
This is a good display of soft colors contrasting with the dark silhouette of the statue. Original POV with good framing and sharpness. I like this beautiful sky.
francio64 (38188) 2012-09-04 13:29
ottima cattura della scultura ben slanciata grazie all'ottimo POV dal basso.
Benchè la scultura è un soggetto statico, la sua particolare posizione fa percepire un senso di movimento, rendendo dinamica la scena.
Well done and TFS!
ciakgiak (30331) 2012-09-04 13:57
Grande la scelta del POV, da vero maestro, e perfetta gestione del controluce.
Eccellenti idea e realizzazione, complimenti anche per la scelta del soggetto!
Un caro saluto
bona (10148) 2012-09-04 14:25
nice photo of this statue. I like it "moviment" probably made by sky colors background.
pierrefonds (48369) 2012-09-04 15:26
The sculptur is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the sculptur. The cloudy sky is affecting the output of the colors. Have a nice day.
ACL1978 (5789) 2012-09-04 15:50
Beautiful and dynamic capture of this statue, Danos - you managed to get good color on the statue itself despite low light, and the colors of the sunset are gorgeous. Well framed and presented.
nikkitta (5896) 2012-09-04 16:02
Good BG of the cloudy sky to give more contrast at the Discobolus Statue
Very good contribution ( note also) to the TE spirit
Sonata11 (28375) 2012-09-04 20:39

rbellemare (2087) 2012-09-04 20:53
Very nice way to present this statue with a sunset in the background. The vertical frame suit this picture very well.
baddori (18988) 2012-09-04 22:51
Excellent image and nice person.
Among discus thrower of Myron and to Dimitriadis you could write a book.
Hard up an evolution of classicism.
In the image sobering great compliments.
The technique and the time of shooting, the purity of form.
Thanks for sharing
bayno (16213) 2012-09-04 23:45

maria-v1981 (10403) 2012-09-05 5:32
Μου αρέσουν πολύ αυτές οι καλλιτεχνικές φωτογραφίες γιατί δείχνουν την εξαιρετική τεχνική σου. Έχεις αποδώσει άψογα την κίνηση του δισκοβόλου από την πλευρά της λήψης που την πήρες. Όλη αυτή η πλαστικότητα και ο υπέροχος ουρανός δημιουργούν ένα πολύ όμορφο καμβά.
Καλή συνέχεια και καλό απόγευμα,
Bluejeans (64239) 2012-09-05 5:40
Ola Danos ,
Interessante esta composição vertical com estas estátua do lançamento do disco , ficou bonito o contraste com o céu em final de dia , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
kato (6789) 2012-09-05 5:51
You're capturing well the statue of the Discobolus by a good angle and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see a discus thrower's brawny image. The whole is harmonized well by this statue, streetlights and the sky dyed to sunset. And, the green leaves at left sude give an additional good effect.
Have a nice week.
timecapturer (30342) 2012-09-05 6:11
love this! Your POV and the light management here make this so effective and eye-catching. The detailing is perfect and the elements so superbly balanced but it is the light in the heavens that make it so attractive and captivating. Awesome!
Regards - Brian.
mirosu (5533) 2012-09-05 6:48
A great use of light. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the athlete. This is a really excellent photo, and is a good example of art photography. The blue sky tones in the BG are beautiful and your composition with the contrasting light the athlete silhouette works so well. Very nice!
jmdias (45820) 2012-09-05 7:18
perfect view. I liked the use of the colors of the sunset here with the silhouete of the sculpture well framed. excellent job.
ikeharel (37378) 2012-09-05 8:38
A perfect silhouette of the fabulous statue, against the darkening sky's.
An interesting post would be to see it on a daylight, just for the comparison.
eldancer1 (17088) 2012-09-05 9:15
Awesome capture of this scene using the silhouette of the statue to break up the image. I like the lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Fis2 (73124) 2012-09-05 14:06
A very curious monument.
Good frame and cmposition.
I like colours and light.
Photo has climate.
dkmurphys (36831) 2012-09-06 1:15

jlbrthnn (79773) 2012-09-06 9:52
The sculptor has obviously worked on the study of the statue before achieved. It is remarkable. You have skillfully enhanced by the choice of this point of view. Sharpness and colors in the photo are excellent. Bravo.

Geia sou Danos
You chose the best angle to reproduce the ultimate momentum before the "flying saucer" takes off for a flight toward those colourful skies!
Waylim (22357) 2012-09-06 12:39
beuatiful shot with such lovely sunset color and wonderful cloud formation. the Statue dominating the composiiton, in semi silhouette form, the statues has strong form of masculine beauty. A tribute to the birth place of the Olympic Games.
mkamionka (24559) 2012-09-06 14:00
very impressive presentation of this beautiful statue. I like how you have selected probably the best possible angle to show the bend of the silhouette in the frame.
It is nicely set against a wonderful colors of the sky.
adramad (27556) 2012-09-06 14:56
A great POV to capture this beautiful sculpture, body torsion is wonderful and here is splendid in this medium backlight, with a sky background is a symphony of colors, blue, pink, gray ....
Beautiful work, I love it.
Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (26295) 2012-09-06 19:54
What a vision and mood, photography as an art, this has got to be one. The wonderful golden atmosphere almost throughout except for the contrasting blueish-grey sky while the athletic statue is very dominating and well framed at low pov, as main subject of interest. This is very creative shot, adding some life and you have created a good atmosphere of the evening, a strong quality shot remembering the Games. Well done, Congrats :))
bertolucci (13351) 2012-09-07 2:55
You placed the famous Discobolus very well in the frame against that beautiful sky, using its very dynamic body language to great effect. The exposure is also well chosen, showing a lot of shadow detail. Very well seen & done!
Best regards from Rotterdam,
ourania (12427) 2012-09-07 3:01
εντυπωσιακή και υπέροχη η παρουσίαση του γνωστού και δημοφιλούς αγάλματος. Η γωνία της λήψης και η καθαρότητα της εικόνας αποδίδουν άριστα και τονίζουν την πλαστικότητα του σώματος του αθλητή και την χάρη της κίνησής του. Επίσης τοποθετούν το άγαλμα μπρόστά από ένα δραματικό και γοητευτικό φόντο. Τα στοιχεία στο κάτω μέρος του κάδρου μας δίνουν πληροφορίες για τον περιβάλλοντα χώρο. Ο φωτισμός είναι εξαιρετικός και δημιουργεί έντονη ατμόσφαιρα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό μεσημέρι.
jhm (122474) 2012-09-07 4:39
A very good made sculpture also a very good anatomy.

the sculpture is undoubtedly beautiful,but even more beautiful looks the scenery of this artwork.Wonderful,
evening light with these warm colors look simply magnificent.You created here really unique mood.Eye-catching scene.Fantastic work Danos!

Budapestman (82620) 2012-09-08 1:21
an attractive photo with beautiful lights and I like the composition and the silhouette of the statue. Nice impression, Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!
Noel_Byrne (7426) 2012-09-08 8:50
Your point of view here is superb, and of course a nod to the artist who created this superb piece. However, I always think that the true beauty of a great sculpture is seen when the monument is captured in a great way, like you have done here. The background sky is perfect, almost like the gods are being invoked for these ancient games.
Janusz1974 (2275) 2012-09-09 1:41
This is a very attractive and impressive shot.
Beautiful capture of this Discobolus statue
Very good note.Well done.
tchefi (1417) 2012-09-09 9:46
Quelle belle mise en valeur de cette statue et trés sympa de la voir de dos. Elle est encadré d'une magnifique lumière que les nuages font ressortir. Bravo!
zoomer (3584) 2012-09-10 9:22

very powerful and full of energy in this frozen moment of this statue. I like your well chosen Pov, where we can see this athlete in full power. Beautiful colors and light, well done!
Have a nice evening.
Angshu (51174) 2012-09-10 21:38
Nice picture of the statue of Discobolus, captured aagainst the sunset sky. I also like the two lamps on the right which not only balances the picture well, but also shines & provided a good angle to the picture.
anokutan (15097) 2012-09-12 1:05
Very good and interesting article about the sculpture and the artist.Nice view of the sculpture and the sky with clouds.Good sharpness and contrast, beautiful color.
josepmarin (55063) 2012-09-12 2:22
a spectacular low-angle shot, in which the statue of the Discobolus stands out on a partially cloudy sky, under a beautiful light of the late afternoon.
The graphical reached effect is superb, the image is very sharp, and the quality of the colors is very high. All this creates a very attractive composition.
Well done, my friend.
sacimar (25957) 2012-09-12 9:03
this is a beautiful image of this statue, I like your idea and the composition, the light and the sky plays a key role here, well done,
delpeoples (45006) 2012-09-17 4:04

Royaldevon (17791) 2012-09-20 2:26
Good Morning Danos,
This is utterly superb!
The statue is wonderfully captured but set against that wonderfully coloured sky, he looks outstanding!
A perfect advert for any Olympic Games.
Have a lovely day,
maloutim (8616) 2012-09-20 6:33
This is a wonderful backlit shot of the discobolus. Perfect stature of the sportsman represented. The sunset sky in the background displays magnificent colours.
Nice reference to the past Olympics.
Just a little fault : The street lamp needs straightening, but it doesn'taffect the quality of the picture.
TFS and have a good weekend.
Vasa (15970) 2012-10-18 1:49
The cultural heritage in Greece is fantastic. Your photo is a small contribution to my conclusion. Follow your work with admiration, Danos.
kasianowak (2263) 2012-10-26 6:24
Beautiful colours in the sky and strong silhouette. Very good frame-filling compostition.
kennyblack (4139) 2012-11-07 7:45
Very beautiful and dynamic this picture of the statue turned to the sky. Although the light was poor, you're able to get a good result. Beautiful play of light and shadows with excellent color. Thank you for sharing.
The best greetings, have a nice day ... Marino

Δάνο, εξαιρετικό γλυπτό και πολύ ενημερωτική σημείωση με τίς λεπτομέρειες πολύ καλά τυπωμένες.
Το σημείο λήψης εντυπωσιάζει και δίνει στην εικόνα την αίγλη πού τής αξίζει!
gus72 (2508) 2013-04-05 18:55
Hi Danos !!!
great drama here..... and a fantastic colour merge of the statue and the sky.
You positioned the camera in the prefect spot to capture the profile of the statue in all its glory.
Very nice composition.
Have a nice week end
